Filomena Vine, a ninth through twelfth grade STEM teacher of Edward W. Clark High School in Las Vegas, NV, has received a $2,000 Learning & Leadership Grant from the NEA Foundation to attend the National Science Teachers Association’s STEM Forum and will present on cross-curricular connections and solutions to promote weather and climate readiness.  Forum workshops will provide a venue for Mrs. Vine and colleagues to collaborate and share data and involve themselves in hands-on activities.  Upon returning, Mrs. Vine will share lessons aligned with standards in the fields of science, English, math, social studies, and technology.
